Text Content: Kids are finally getting back to school after almost 5 months off due to the Covid 19 Lockdown. After the stress of homeschooling this will be welcome news for many parents but getting your child back into a routine can be difficult especially after being out of sync for so long. However, the consistency of a routine is more important than ever to help your child feel secure during this uncertain time.

Sub-header (optional): How much sleep does my child need?
Text Content: It’s a well-known fact that sleep quality affects cognitive performance and child development, giving parents a strong incentive to make sure their children are arriving into school each day ready to learn and socialise having had a great night’s sleep. But just how much sleep does your child need? The National Sleep Foundation has revised their sleep recommendations to the following:
  • Pre-schoolers Aged 3-5 years: 10-13 hours
  • School Aged Children 6-13 years: 9-11 hours
  • Teenagers 14-17 years: 8-10 hours

Sub Header (Optional): Relaxation and Wind-down Techniques
Text Content: The NHS recommends that children create a relaxing wind-down routine that they can repeat every night at the same time to help them get in the frame of mind for sleep and rest:
  • Having a warm (not hot) bath will help their body reach an ideal temperature for rest
  • Dimming the lights will encourage your child’s body to produce the sleep hormone, melatonin; Darken the room with our BlocOut™ Blackout Blinds and use a night light instead to help them unwind and prepare for sleep
  • Once they’re in bed, encourage your child to read quietly or listen to some relaxing music to relax the mind by distracting it
  • Switch off Tablets, smartphones and TV’s for an hour before they go to sleep and try to keep their bedroom a screen-free zone
  • Teenagers should avoid drinking caffeine, such as tea, coffee or energy drinks, particularly in the 4 hours before falling asleep
